Will Byrnes great stuff

message 2: by Claire (new) - added it

Claire S Yeah, seems like it will be. Especially about how he constructs his reality, and maintains that construction, and how that construction affects him. I'm fascinated by things like that.

Will Byrnes I am looking forward to seeing your review.

Claire S Thanks, I haven't quite taken hold of this goodreads-review process yet, but hopefully soon I'll get there!

Will Byrnes Really? That is surprising. The numbers would indicate otherwise. You have posted one or two previously.

Claire S Yes, but they haven't really attained the quality of prime-time Goodreads-style reviews, you know..

Will Byrnes I am not terribly thrilled with most of mine, so I share the feeling. I don't really know what I am doing when I write these things. Writing summaries was mostly just a way for me to offer my challenged memory a crutch. There is little real format or consistency to them. Someday, maybe, for each of us. Practice, practice, practice.

Will Byrnes By the way, although I have not yet put up a review of The Book Thief, it is a must read.

Thanks about book thief, I have it and everything, so will be soon. Looking forward to it!
